Hi Hans,

IMHO, the MGB is a much better car than the TR6.  With its separate frame, 
the TR6 has much more flex and rattle and the performance is not that much 
better.  And there are some very iffy (American for 'dodgy') design 
decisions.  Triumph changed models more frequently than MG did and they 
didn't seem to take as much care with the design as MG did.  In my car club 
experience, just like their cars, people who own MGs seem more substantial 
than the boy racers who go for Triumphs.  When the San Diego MG Club would 
have joint events with the Triumph club, the Triumph people would drink like 
fish and then intentionally stick the MG people with the bill.  Maybe it was 
that extra $100. ;-)
